Strauss credits the 'outstanding spell from Umar Gul' and says he's disappointed not to have chased down the target.
Afridi gets a massive cheer from The Oval crowd and says all his bowlers bowled well but "not me!" Good value as always from Afridi, big smile as he says his run out was due to "lazy running".
Umar Gul is Named man of the Match. He says his form as has been improving slowly since his injury and thanks his coaches for all their support.
Great result for the series that - keeping it alive and Andrew Miller will have his bulletin in here. That's all from us, thanks for many of the emails and I hope you'll join us on Monday for the next game.
Pakistan win by 23 runs. Brilliant scenes at The Oval, Pakistan really needed that victory and England's collapse - 5 for 17 - has sealed it. Stay with us for the presentations - the wonderful bowling from Umar Gul will surely have earned him the Man of the Match award.
Anderson on strike now, no slip in place.
Big team conference for Pakistan, arms waving, pointing, all sorts happening. Razzaq will bowl and long-on, deep-square and deep midwicket are the men out.
"I must admit one thing, this powerplay thing has made cricket somewhat more interesting and affected match results," writes Harvinder Singh. "Most teams never know when to apply it (90% cases). And I am sure it would continue to be so."
What can Anderson do? Slip in place...
This will be tough for Anderson and Wright - Saeed Ajmal.
Perhaps England want Afridi to keep the field deep, which is exactly what he's doing.
James Anderson is the new man and he just needs to hang in there for Luke Wright. Time for the Powerplay? No? Apparently not. Very strange indeed.
Slip comes in for Swann!
